Needs advice
on
Python
JavaScript
and
C++

Hi, I'm just starting to learn code, and I stumbled upon this website. I think I should learn JavaScript, Python, and C++ to begin with. I'm a quick learner so I am only worried about what would be more useful. Suppose my goal is to build an online clothing store or something. Then what languages would be best? I need advice. Please help me out. I'm 13 and just beginning and it's hard to understand when people use technical terms so please keep it simple. Thanks a lot.

Python

Go with Python. It's syntax is really simple and less verbose compare to others. You can use Python for basically anything like web dev, task automation, data science, data engineering, cybersecurity etc. At initial level, it's more important to get an understanding of programming fundamentals. Once you get conformable with coding in general, then you can explore other languages.

I would worry less about languages when you're first starting out. If you want to build an online store, then javascript is a great language that is used all over the web! Get comfortable with your first language, learn some computer science concepts and how to build things the right way, and then just work towards a goal and learn as you go!

https://www.w3schools.com/ is a great resource and it's completely free, everything you need to know to build a website is on that page if you have the drive to learn it. Best of luck to you!

Here's a neat roadmap too, in case you find yourself lost on what to learn next https://roadmap.sh/frontend

Hmm, I will be honest with you, learning JS for online stores is an option, but not necessarily the easiest one. No beginner should ever attempt building an online store from scratch imo. There are too many caveats for that.

Therefore I would recommend first choosing an existing framework and then using the newfound knowledge in JS to configure this store. Many of the existing big ones are written in PHP (read wordpress), but a smart person would set the sights on an existing online store framework built on JS.

There are Telegram channels specialized in programming that help each other, especially since you will need help at the beginning
